Patient Comments (1)
in Clifton, NJ |
She is a doctor who actually took her time to listen to a parent whose child was almost admitted to a hospital bc of her eczema. Dr Schaffer was actually able to give me specific instructions on her treatment plan and was readily available for me to talk to when my daughter needed her the most. I can't say enough good things about her and her commitment to her patients that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
